i was surprised to see the "No cross, no crown." text pop up, since Japanese don't often use stuff taken from Christianity. like if you see a Japanese artist wear a cross, it's just because it may be good looking, there's almost never any significant meaning behind it. the meaning is that there's a reward in heaven (the crown) after the trials in this life (the cross), obviously coming from the life of Jesus.

I think the word "Cross" in this context is not related with the Cross in religion. Wink I think the "Cross" refer to "Cross" that related to streets, or something like that. Smile

Guys, isn't "No Cross, No Crown" a saying? I means, that you have to be diligent if you want to accomplish something Wink .

I just watched the PV, very enjoyable Boogie I'm so happy that Ai-chin is continuing with Love-chan as this allows her to keep a cutesy style forever Smile

Actually I would say "no cross no crown" is definitely borrowed from a christian context ( just try searching that phrase in google ). It's obviously something that Ai (or the PV director?) had heard before - though I think it is doubtful they would be thinking of it in a Christian context. They are probably thinking more along the lines of what mangomalte said, without the trials and suffering of hard work you won't achieve glory.

Yeah...I think it was used just as a saying...without the christian context..
"No Cross, No Crown" is just an expression....at least in spanish it is Laughing ...doesn't imply any religious beliefs.

^ ooooh, HQ version! thanks! Giggle

edit: and whatever you say, there IS a christian message behind No Cross, No Crown, even if it isn't always used that way anymore.

These are keychains, every one got a album song as the theme. But there is a writing mistake: It's "Red Eye", not "Red Eyef" Shocked.

Once, no more, that's why so few things sell well nowadays, such as $30+ CDs. Sad

Not sure if this was mentioned yet or not, but the Taiwan Version of the mini-album is coming out on Nov 20th! 2 days after the Japan version release.

It only comes in the CD+DVD version, so there's no CD only version.
